Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** ***** and I live in Washington State. Right now I am staying at my folks house as my husband threw me out of the house (after he pushed me down) and said he wanted a divorce on Dec. 23. So far he has done nothing in regards ***** ***** He needs to fix up the house to sell and has done nothing in regards ***** ***** What are my rights in regard to a divorce considering I have a 75% disability of the right leg and can only work 4 hours a day.

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I can't stay at my folks house forever, and I don't want to go back to the house as long as my husband is there because I don't trust him to not physically hurt me. He has a lot of anger issues. He is 63 and I am 58 and we've been together for 37 years.

Do you and your husband both live in WA state? Is that the marital state?

Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
that is the marital state.
Family Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

It is a community property state. So, you have a lawful claim to half of the assets acquired during the marriage. Additionally, you can not be excluded from the marital home, absent an agreement or court order.
